Your recommendations will maintain and improve equipment reliability, PM compliance, schedule compliance, job safety, cost control and provide skills training as needed. The Maintenance Team Leader will actively participate in Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and problem-solving activities to ensure the highest possible efficiency of equipment within the facility.
